Sexual Abuse in Nursing Homes

Shocked, surprised by the recent story  that an employee of Medilodge in Rochester Hills was arrested for criminal sexual conduct with an 80 plus year old resident? Don’t be.  It is not all that uncommon. Our law firm has previously represented  residents who have been sexually attacked in nursing homes by employees, other residents and family members of residents. Nursing home residents are vulnerable and easy prey for this type of individual.  The real question is how many other victims are out there, and how long this has been taking place?
